Great little place. Sushi $3.50 a plate. You can also order hot food which some are also $3.50. You may ask for a membership card which will provide a free drink each time you visit.

Compared to prices in other restaurants I visited in Sydney, you can get really full really cheap. And it's definitely a good sushi, prepared by an enthusiastic staff in front of you.

I guess you can't argue with $3.50 a plate for some decent sushi. Sashimi plates are $7 but good quality fresh fish. We found service to be okay and with all the staff being Japanese makes it feel like you are in Tokyo. The menu is simple and reasonably priced for those that aren't interested in the train dishes. Happy... More

Great sushi train atmosphere, staff were polite and efficient, didn't get one thing wrong even though a large group of us were eating there for the first time. Delicious and so cheap. All plates just $3.. The only down side was they don't serve any alcohol, tea and softdrinks only. However i think this is standard in order to keep... More

We wandered here while searching for a restaurant near where we were staying. The baked seafood fried rice is a must! It's unexpected, great seafood flavor with a cheesy mayo crust. We also enjoyed the soft shell crab roll. Two of us ate well for 25$. We liked it so much the first time we came back for dinner later... More

At $3 a plate its the cheapest sushi train we've been to in Sydney CBD and the quality is fair, not the best obviously- minor complaints being chewy nori and too much mayonnaise. The spicy salmon nigiri was really good though. In summary I think is a good place to go to a quick, cheap eat but its not worth... More

We had lunch here and it was good. They don't have a huge variation on the sushi train but it was a good lunch. I will eat there again.

I have been to Sushi Rio tens of times and the sushi is great. The chef's are good but the waitresses are disappointing. Today I went there for lunch and there was a grandma next to me who had 3 plates of sushi from the train. She wanted to order something from the menu, hailed the waitress and pointed to... More

This is one of the very few sushi trains that let you order your little dishes as much as you like, all for 3$ each, fresh and tasty right from the open kitchen in front of you. Love it.

Came here after reading so many good review about this place but then disappointed. Place was busy and service was good, however the sushi were very so-so and not as what we expected. It might be an affordable sushi place compared to other sushi restaurant in Sydney, but I was kind of regret eating here. For me it's just not... More
